Captain America Inspired Soda Cozy


(This pattern originally appeared online at Craftown.com. Copyrights have now reverted to me, the designer.)  
 
Summer is here and it’s time to get ready for some fun! One of the best things about summer is an ice-cold summer soft drink, iced tea or juice.  What’s worse than sweating on a sweltering summer afternoon? A warm drink! The solution = Crochet a soda cozy to keep your soda nice and cool while you bask in the summer sun. Create one in every color of the rainbow, hand them out to friends and family, and enjoy your summer cool down drink!

This pattern also doubles as a fun little gift for the Super Heroes/Avengers fan in your life!
